Since Ironman, I've kind of been in a funk when it comes to training and racing. Ok, a full-on "I don't ever want to do another Ironman!" funk.
After a month of recovering/sleeping in, enough was enough. So I made some changes, and got my fitness groove back...
I think most people would agree that having a conscience is important when you are a contributing member of society. If your moral conscience is in order, then it only make sense that a physical activity conscience would be a great little addition to most people's lives. Enter the Waterfi* Waterproofed Nike+ FuelBand SE.

We're a group of waterfall gawkers, beach goers, hikers, and world travelers. Here are some of our adventures from this summer.
I guess when you think about it, an Englishman using a waterproofed iPod sounds rather logical. After all, we are the nation with various analogies and some quite literal phrases such as "as right as rain," "it's raining cats & dogs," and my personal favourite "it never rains, but it pours!" All of which are embedded into our nations general lexicon...
From where I stand on the shores of Mirror Lake, the water appears serene and soft. The kayaks and canoes competing nearby in the Lake Placid International Regatta seem to glide along the surface. Off shore a few hundred feet, the colorful swim caps of athletes training for Ironman bob along from buoy to buoy.
"SARA!" I hear someone call to me. It can only be one person…Danny Arnold. His tall frame bounds down the hill, past startled rowers, and gives me an energetic hug! Danny and I are 1 day and 20 years apart in physical age, but in spirit one might venture to call Danny and I twins. We share a reputation for cheering and chatting with our fellow triathletes from start to finish line...
Simple right? Not so fast. When your legs are in shape, your body is in shape. I believe this goes not only in the water, but also out of the water. My head Santa Clara Swim Coach, Dick Jochums, always stressed on the legs. Want to feel like you're really in shape? Focus on the kick each swim workout...
"When we heard about Waterfi's custom waterproof Paperwhite, we were delighted at the prospect, but reserved final judgement until we could put it through the wringer ourselves. And after some highly scientific experimentation, we can confirm: This thing is a goddamn rock.
Of course, that it held up shouldn't come as a total surprise. Waterfi has plenty of experience in the gadget waterproofing game, with Fuelbands and headphones aplenty in its arsenal—all of which you buy directly from the company itself. The company covers devices inside and out with its "Dual Layer waterproofing process," but unlike some other waterproof-coating claims, the Waterfi's treatment doesn't change the look and feel of the end product. In the Kindle's case, the buttons are a little stiffer when it comes out of the (original packaging!) box, but Waterfi assured us through email that this goes away after about a month of use.
To start kick off testing, we gave our Paperwhite a simple water bath—no problems there. Since Paperwhites use capacitive touch, you obviously can't control it while physically underwater, but once we pulled it out, the few drops left on the surface didn't impair page turning to any noticeable degree.
Promising! So we decided to step it up a few notches; the grape soda, tomato sauce, vegetable oil, and honey notches, specifically..."
The front crawl is the most common swimming style, and by far one of the most useful, powerful, and fastest of all swim strokes. It is most often utilized in freestyle swimming competitions, where swimmers are free to choose whatever style they want to swim in, leading the front crawl to become commonly referred to as freestyle...

Most of us who swam for a Junior college or University experienced the "burnout" feeling towards the latter part of our career. It was a feeling of relief that we did not have to look at the skinny black line nonstop for 1,000's of yards of pain. There was a small minority who thrived on the sport and kept competing even after their intense college experience.
For me, I needed a new outlet; I was over swimming. It was a great sport which shaped me into the mentally tough athlete I am today, but it had worn so much on me I could care less if I ever jumped into a cold pool again for anything short of a cool off on a hot summer day...
